There you have it. Just in case you may think your job is safe if you're working on something important at this place... Think again. They no longer care what you're working on. If you feel like a number, that number will soon be 0.

Has anyone else noticed the flood of glowingly positive reviews that have been posted on Glassdoor for West the last few days? Seems uh, odd.

You can rearrange the chairs on the deck of the Titanic but it doesn't change the outcome of the end." There won't be a sequel movie for West. West new leadership has lost the ship and along with it, the morale of most of the staff employees. I can't... read more
What's going on with layoffs? Are we expecting any more this week? I have to admit that last week crept up on me unexpectedly, and considering that I am always stressing about layoffs that's really saying something. Can we expect more surprises like... read more

Any news on the Manassas, Va call center? Anyone know??

People endured multiple years of no or 1 to 3 percent raises are being walked out. Friends I've worked with 20 years being shown the door. Dont work here. Upper management keep profits with little to nothing going to workers.
I know there are more layoffs coming in September, so I am not asking about long term. I'm just wondering if layoffs that have been happening for the past two days are finally over and done with, or can we expect more notifications today or even next... read more
